The astronomic success of 'Something Special' has lead to Miguel Campbell becoming one of the most sought after DJs and producers in the industry. It was Jamie Jones and Lee Foss who first spotted the Leeds based Miguel Campbell and snapped him up with Baby I Got It, which was released on the label in 2011. The follow up single Something Special, became the biggest selling track on Beatport that year, now clocking over 4 million views on Youtube. Since then, Miguel has won a DJ Mag Best of British Award and has been releasing and remixing on other labels such as Wolf + Lamb and his own Outcross Records.
Miguel's forthcoming single Rockin Beats is a funk fuelled odyssey, filled with spacey electronic madness it showcases Campbells dextrous use of vocals adding extra dimensions as the vocoder Daft Punk style rapping from northern vocalist Naroe rolls through the zappy synths and warm beats. Dirtybird favourite Shadow Child makes his first appearance on the imprint with his remix of Rockin Beats bass-led and groovy with shuffling percussions, the track soon progresses into a perfect dose of nu-school house on a garage tip. The melodic keys and bouncing percussions are highly intoxicating and prove why the skillful producer has become a favourite amongst heavyweights including Eats Everything and Claude Von Stroke.
On the flip Not That Kind Of Girl features the beautiful voice of Becks Lott. With a similar flavour to 'Something Special' the warm feminine vocal oozes over the funk style beats.For the remix, Miguel teams up with Matt Hughes under their MAM moniker, taking it deeper, with less focus on the vocal and more on the music.This release serves as a taster for Campbells album 'Return to Flight School' , which will be released as the first full length-album on Hot Creations 29th October 2012
